Prologue
The Archbishop said discussion had centred on the report in the Convening Circular of General Synod, particularly on the procedures suggested by the Task Force on effecting union with other Churches. Voting membership was a matter given much consideration as, in many dioceses, this is decided by diocesan Canon. There was also concern for the theology underlying Church membership as defined by the Task Force.
Text
This House of Bishops recommends to the Upper House that it informs the Task Force of the Committee on Organization that we would appreciate their favourable consideration of the withdrawal of Section 8-e of their Report, as it involves a theology of Church membership and, in our opinion, is not essential to the report at present, and is also related to the Canons of individual dioceses.
